Megapixel IP Camera System
The M12D-Night has two integrated image sensors and two lenses. Depending on the illumination level, the camera automatically selects the color image sensor with daylight lens or the more lightsensitive B/W image sensor with IR lens to record the images.
The resolution of 1280 x 960 pixels is about twelve times as high as the CIF images from an analog camera. In VGA (640 x 480) and CIF (320 x 240) mode, the camera provides up to 4x zoom while creating minimal network load (MxPEG: approx. 1 Mbps, CIF 25 fps). Bidirectional audio, video motion detection and a passive IR sensor are also integrated. The Ethernet, ISDN and RS232 interfaces of the camera comply with current IT standards, including GSM/GPRS/UMTS (3G).
Digital zoom, panning, video motion detection, event-controlled frame rates and freely selectable image sections reduce the storage requirements of the M12 to a minimum. The integrated camera software features include alarm management with pre- and post-alarm images, FTP, e-mail, external ring buffer storage on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X computers as well as playback and MultiView functions for up to 40 cameras in the browser. Since the camera does not require additional heating (operating temp. -30 to +60°C, -20 to +140°F), power can be supplied via the network.
